1. Recognize the signs - victims suddenly collapse and fall, becoming unconscious.
The person will not respond to touch or sound and will not be breathing.
2. Call 911
3. Start CPR - 911 will help you to perform CPR while
ambulances are on the way. Compress the chest by pushing
hard and fast in the middle of the victim’s chest at
approximately 100 beats per minute.
4. Use an automated defibrillator to restore normal rhythm
if available.
The Heart Rhythm Society estimates that more than 350,000 deaths occur in the USA each
year as a result of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). In fact, SCA claims one life every two minutes.
During SCA, the heart stops beating and no blood is pumped to the rest of the body. This
could be compared to losing electricity in your house. The heart “electricity” must be turned
back on, typically through electrical shock.
1. Have you ever had a heart attack?
2. Is your heart weak? Is the muscle contraction reduced?
(low ejection fraction)
3. Have you experienced unexplained palpitations, dizzy spells or fainting?
4. Have members of your family died suddenly at a young age?
